Like many areas of science, the early days of genomics quickly became a male-dominated discipline. While more women were earning advanced degrees and training in this area, fewer were finding a place in faculty and other leadership positions. Dr. Kellye Eversole and others developed a group to advance networking channels, provide career advice, and relay funding opportunities with the interest in connecting women scientists with others in genomics. For over twenty years this organization has helped to raise opportunities for women in genomics, especially early-career scientists. Their support has helped accelerate the careers of many women in science.
